Helwig Internship Week 7: March 24th & 26th

This past week of my internship was sadly cut short. I only got to go into work on Tuesday because I got into a car crash on Wednesday. I was on my way home when someone rear-ended me. Ended up going to the hospital where I found out I sprained my neck. I called into Wesh from the hospital, and they advised me not to come into work the next day. On Tuesday though I pretty much did the same thing I was doing last week. In the morning I was practicing on the video board, learning how to operate the vis (the system that flows video stored on a server to the board). The concept of the vis is hard to wrap my mind around, but luckily I am working with one of the most experienced technical directors in the building. On the other hand, in engineering I was prepping shows all day and learned how to prep shows on the video client. The video client is different from other linear editing system since it is not laid out like a movie editing software. You have to work with time codes and it is very confusing but once you have doe it once or twice, it is not as bad. Also while I was in engineering, I talked to my supervisor about shadowing a co-worker named Stephanie who works with programing the satellites. I think this would be interesting to learn about since I am getting a good understanding of everything else. Hopefully next week will be more exciting in injury free!

  1. Sorry to hear the accident slowed you down. Glad to hear you are OK though, because it obviously could have been worse.
